On an ordinary day in Ponyville, four friends are about to find way more adventure than they bargained for. There’s Silver Spirit, the dim but lovable earth pony who specializes in the healing arts. Dusk Waterstone (of the Cloudsdale Waterstones) is a pegasus lawyer whose blunt but honest manner makes her a courtroom star. Crimson Moon, a unicorn with a penchant for chasing gems, is a practiced expert in telekinesis. Finally, Shadow Whimsy uses her unicorn magic and a dash of empathetic power to converse with animals. When these ponies are asked to pet-sit for the bearers of The Elements of Harmony, six of the most important ponies in all of Equestria, they immediately agree. But what should be a simple job turns into a thrilling quest full of fun, danger and excitement when all six of their charges scatter into The Everfree Forest, where the clouds move themselves and wild magic runs amok. In order to retrieve all six pets, they’ll have to face diamond dogs, avoid poisoned joke, and navigate all manner of harrowing hazards. Can these four ponies find the lost pets and escape the Everfree? Listen to find out!

First, however, they will need to capture the final piece, a sliver that they did not even realize was missing, from the Master’s helmet. And before that, they’ll need to put aside their differences, work out their interpersonal issues, and learn to work together as a team.

This week’s installment of Masters of Umdaar finds our brave Archaeonauts returning to the seaside village of Meh on the Mediocre Coast, site of their storied victory against the dreaded Ella-Vator! The Cube of Subeqo has led them back with visions of an underwater temple where the next fragment awaits. But before they can explore, our heroes will have to navigate the awkward social consequences of their previous dealings with the townsfolk, and discover the true story behind the underwater castle. When a fellow artifact hunter offers them a ride in her submarine, they gladly accept, but is their faith in her good will mislaid? (Spoiler: Yes.)

A group of settlers embarks on the trail west, each for their own reasons. In order to guarantee safety in numbers, they band together with other travelers hoping to start new lives on the frontier. But something is terribly wrong. The wagon trains’s cattle have started to sicken and die mysteriously. Travelers who wander off alone are vanishing. Can these brave pioneers discover the truth behind the shadowy dangers plaguing their caravan, or will they find themselves lost in the American wilderness, at the mercy of the bloodthirsty undead?

First, in order to cross the chasm, they’ll have to deal with a ferryman who demands that they give a part of themselves–or will they? Next, they’ll have to avoid a swarm of ants that has “uploaded” most of a city. Can they avoid being devoured? Finally, they’ll have to explore the Library of the Unknown, where the books reveal the knowledge that nobody else in Umdaar possesses.
